Approved For lease 2003/11/04: CIA-RDP80B0167 000200140031 28 January 1963 MEMORANDUM FOR: Executive Director !s/ A r8r~ Yesterday, just before departing on his trip, the DCI instructed that an extremely sensitive cable which had been received in Headquarters in the early morning of 27 January should be disseminated in sterile form as rapidly as possible to the President and the Attorney General. The dissemination of this cable, with its extremely short deadline, required complex and difficult arrangements including a series of telephone calls to pave the way for its receipt. There was not time enough for me to come to the building to arrange for all this and I therefore telephoned Cable Secretariat Duty Office requesting him to STATINTL make all appropriate arrangements. This job was done without a hitch and very rapidly. I would like to commend for his efforts in this matter. Moreover, it has been my experience while on the Director's Staff to enjoy this kind of support from the Cable Secretariat and its Duty Officers without exception. E. H.
